Kyoto Protocol effective on Feb 16, 2005

The Kyoto protocol on climate Change becomes international law on February 16, 2005. The debate is currently raging on whether the Canadian Governement strategy on voluntary agreements, demonstration projects, and advertising” will achieve the goals of reducing GHG emissions or will regulations be necessary. Under Kyoto, Canada agrees to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 6% below 1990 levels by 2012. This would represent a 26% reduction from projected 2012 levels. Two years ago, Canada had surpassed its 1990 levels by close to 20%.
